    PH Davis Cup team left with a mountain to climb after losing opening singles to Chinese Taipei

    Jul 17, 2015

    CHINESE Taipei gained a 2-0 lead over the Philippines after sweeping the opening singles of their 2015 Asia/Oceania Davis Cup Group II second-round tie on Friday at the Kaohsiung Yangming Tennis Courts in Taiwan.

    Hung Jui-chen beat Jeson Patrombon, 6-2, 6-2, 6-1, in the first singles game before world No. 61 Lu Yen-hsun downed Patrick John Tierro by the same score line.

    The sweep moved the Taiwanese a win away from advancing to the Group II finals, with Lee Hsin-han and Peng Hsien-yin battling Ruben Gonzales and Treat Huey in the doubles match set on Saturday.

    The winner of the tie will face Pakistan, winner over Indonesia in the other pairing.
